    Chapter 1

    Oh! It really makes my day when I see readers actually spotting little clues when they read. Of course he could be leaving home for some other reason than having got a place at university... Thanks for the vote of confidence. I'll try not to let you down as far as your 'expecting a good read' comment is concerned.
  3. This particular "grail" (the Baron's son, the destruction of the evil one) is but one in a long series of adventures in this lifetime. It is a continuation of adventures in past lives and a precursor of adventures in future lives. Just as Lancelot never found the grail he sought, it is unlikely these boys (or the Principality of Arcadia and its ally, the Kingdom of the Elves) will ever completely overcome evil.
  4. This particular part of the book is apparently based on W. W. Comfort's translation of "The Quest for the Holy Grail," but without the religious aspect. In the introduction, Comfort writes, These familiar adventures with lorn ladies, with eyrie castles, with awful tombs and sylvan shrines, with cruel or craven knights—are all invested with a new “significance.” They are interpreted by the lonely hermits and learned abbots as mere trials of that faith which must survive all trials along the way of life. These adventures which astound and baffle the knights are inexplicable to them until they are explained by godly men in their true perspective as tests of moral and spiritual strength. www.yorku.ca/inpar/quest_comfort.pdf I think that addresses a number of your thoughts. Thank you for those, and as always, thank you for reading.
  5. All will be revealed – eventually. Rudy of Barrone (original author) does not write cliff-hangers, but he does sprinkle obscure clues throughout "The Book of Heroes."
  6. "Good attracts evil; exceptional good attracts exceptional evil."

    Ancient Magic

    It would appear this particular band of brigands has some official protection, not unlike criminals in a corrupt city in our Earth Analogue. I believe you will see another side of this soon.

    The Relic

    Yes, the author mishandled the amulet; however, the knowledge they gained may have been more important than the magic.
  9. You both saw that Thom is to become an important player in Patrick and Alan's missions. Keep an eye on him!

    Spymaster

    CAdfael, AKA "The Pelican," and his operation is indeed secret, although I suspect Alan's father is aware of at least some of it. "The fewer people who know a secret the longer it may be kept." And he's not as big a fool as he appears, but someone of something stepped in to ensure Patrick and Alan would bond with him.
  11. Today
  12. Thank you all for reading and for your thoughts. Patrick, of course, is the essence of Lawful-Good and Alan is utterly steadfast and devoted to him. (Anyone see any wish-fulfillment, there?)😊

    The gated well

    Ignorance is not always blissful. Sometimes it is dangerous. I believe Daniel needs to solve the mysteries that surround the work of his friend and the strange person who has usurped his place in Charles life. I can only hope that he is able to rescue Charles before it is too late.
  14. Another amazing chapter! I feel bad for Salem, whatever happened to him to make him act like that. He clearly needs some kind of help - therapy, medication, but also friends. Maybe Johnny will be good for him. I also wonder what happened to his mom? Btw Johhny is a great poet! I especially liked Karma!

    Chapter 18

    It could have been worse. Tim and the meeting being a trap weren't surprises. Weaving the spectre into the story was a nice touch.

    Devon

    Agreed. And I think everyone, monogamous or not, could learn something from the kind of openness and communication found in good, healthy poly relationships. Thanks for all your input on this story, it's greatly appreciated. ❤️

    Honesty

    Blake proved he is an awesome and loyal friend, I'm so glad Jasper decided to confide in him. I'm pretty sure the other two guys will be ok with it as well, they're all friends after all, not just bandmates. I'm still suspicious of Chris, he seems like he has more tricks up his sleeve. If he does decide do kick Ryan out of the band, I'm not sure what the other guys can do about it? They probably have contracts with the record label so they can't just all quit.

    The Next Step

    LOL, not my intent at all; just thinking out loud. @Aceinthehole has talents far beyond me to be weaving his stories. I have faith that regardless which direction it takes a us it will be an adventure. He is an amazingly young talent. I do get vested with the characters though and can only hope to have that gang all survive the tale. Perhaps because of the young characters and having lost a young friend/crush in high school, it was truly a shocking lost when Jamie didn’t survive Velocity. To build that connection of a character and their bonded characters with the audience and then have that character violently and unexpectedly snatched from the audience is more difficult for me but I still appreciate the talent regardless.s

    My guess is Gold.

    Chapter 41

    As Arad steps out into the void, I wonder what unexpected impediment he will encounter....Mann never lets his characters have it easy.

    Chapter 32

    I was just WAITING for someone to make make that comment. 🤣 I almost went there myself! The kids are having meltdowns I'm sure. Kids do. Luckily Lex and Ian don't have to deal with them. Kathy and Jessie are troopers!

    Il Gran Si

    Outstanding chapter! Toby and Mr. Higinbotham most definitely have an agenda, the tryst with Mr. Fish is unusual. Jimbo and Mason along with the rest of the camp staff are aware that something is going on and are also aware that Toby and Ed are behind the drama. The troubles approaching as the last week of camp progresses are going to be difficult but Jimbo, Mason and staff will solve the problems and come out on top together. I’m definitely looking forward to the next chapter! 😃❤️

    The Haven

    Excellent chapter! I’m nervous about the weekend at the aunt’s cabin, Trish is setting them up for Jace’s family to catch them together or to hear rumors about them being together. Brody’s parents concern for the safety of their son and Jace, to provide them with safety and security while they figure out their relationship. The garage apartment is brilliant. I’m definitely looking forward to the next chapter! 😃❤️ I’m also very happy about the sequel to Between the Shadow and the Soul. The story was difficult to read due to the subject matter, however, it was a truly inspiring story of horror, hope and family working through the issues of an attack together to reach understanding and ultimately happiness, despite the past manipulation and trauma that occurred. I’m really looking forward to reading this new story! ❤️
